The South Island Under 19 and Under 16 Championships was held at Harewood Golf Club (Christchurch) last week, with the event doubling as the South Island Junior Interprovincial tournament.
Otago finished in second place, behind Canterbury, in both the Under 16 and Under 19 sections. Canterbury fielded a particularly strong Under 19 side and second place was a strong result for the Otago team. The Under 16 Otago crew were a very young group of players and their result augurs well for the future.
St Clair’s Joseph Hancock finished highest in the individual standings by an Otago player, closing the week with a fine round of 69.
Otago Under 19 Team:
Callum Judkins (Otago), Hayden Robertson (Taieri Lakes), Parker Aluesi (St Clair), Joseph Hancock (St Clair), Callum White (St Clair)
Otago Under 16 Team:
Liam Judkins (Wakatipu Junior), Noah Novacek (Wakatipu Junior), Nico Cheifetz (Wakatipu Junior), Kai Koni (Chisholm Links), Jan Ebbinge (Wakatipu Junior)
